The Protocols is entirely a work of fiction, intentionally written to blame Jews for a variety of ills. Those who distribute it claim that it documents a Jewish conspiracy to dominate the world. The conspiracy and its alleged leaders, the so-called Elders of Zion, never existed.
In 1903, portions of The Protocols of the Elders of Zion were serialized in a Russian newspaper, Znamya (The Banner). The version of the Protocols that has endured and has been translated into dozens of languages, however, was first published in Russia in 1905 as an appendix to The Great in the Small: The Coming of the Anti-Christ and the Rule of Satan on Earth, by Russian writer and mystic Sergei Nilus.
Nazi Party ideologue Alfred Rosenberg introduced Hitler to the Protocols during the early 1920s, as Hitler was developing his worldview. Hitler referred to the Protocols in some of his early political speeches, and, throughout his career, he exploited the myth that "Jewish-Bolshevists" were conspiring to control the world.
The US Senate issued a report in 1964 declaring that the Protocols were "fabricated." The Senate called the contents of the Protocols "gibberish" and criticized those who "peddled" the Protocols for using the same propaganda technique as Hitler.
The existence of evil and suffering in our world seems to pose a serious challenge to belief in the existence of a perfect God. If God were all-knowing, it seems that God would know about all of the horrible things that happen in our world. If God were all-powerful, God would be able to do something about all of the evil and suffering. Furthermore, if God were morally perfect, then surely God would want to do something about it. And yet we find that our world is filled with countless instances of evil and suffering. These facts about evil and suffering seem to conflict with the orthodox theist claim that there exists a perfectly good God. The challenge posed by this apparent conflict has come to be known as the problem of evil.
If, as theists must surely maintain, God does possess morally significant freedom, then perhaps this sort of freedom does not preclude an inability to choose what is wrong. But if it is possible for God to possess morally significant freedom and for him to be unable to do wrong, then W3 once again appears to be possible after all. Originally, Plantinga claimed that W3 is not a logically possible world because the description of that world is logically inconsistent. If W3 is possible, then the complaint lodged by Flew and Mackie above that God could (and therefore should) have created a world full of creatures who always did what is right is not answered.
Here is the URL to the existing page that was deleted by UDScott (due to lack of sources): _proverbsI am not the original author of this page. But I am appealing for the restoration of this highly useful page onto wikipedia.This was an extremely resourceful page that had hundreds of Continental/Brazilian Portuguese proverbs/sayings that were also translated into English and other languages. I found this VERY useful for any language enthusiast. Please restore this page ASAP in its entirety as there was a PLETHORA of knowledge to be harvested from this page. If you cannot leave the page, I will understand your respect for 'sources' however I would like to save a copy of these proverbs on my hard drive, would it be possible to either restore this page or send me the data? Thank you! 22.214.171.124 04:16, 23 January 2012
Ok. This time, I am not going down without a fight. I just want to say that even though we are in a completely different scope than the English Wikipedia, they were not harming anything by existing here. Second, all of them are notable, and I can add references for every single one of the rivers that I added to make them even more notable. Thirdly, the deletion was wrong to begin with because a) You did not notify the user who was the main contributor to all of these articles so that he could have his say, and b) your rationales for deleting them go against every policy that Wikipedia has to offer. You don't just mass delete pages just because they are one-line stubs. You keep them as stubs until someone can expand them. The probable reasons as to why there is not much information about them is because there hasn't been much studies done on them. If other countries are allowed to have their river articles here, then Romania should be allowed to as well. Romania just has a further depth of articles about Romania because there have been people that cared enough about Romania to add them in the first place. I don't care if the consensus at the time was to delete, they never harmed the Wikipedia in the first place by existing, and now that they are all deleted, that was the harm done to this project.

Hello there. Unlike the asteroid stubs, all of the rivers that you deleted were all inherently notable according to the English Wikipedia. Therefore, I would like to request that All of the Romanian Rivers be undeleted, as well as a bunch of other pages that were not rivers that also got deleted. I was shocked that nobody even though to let me know via email that the Romanian River pages were up for deletion. I didn't even know that they were deleted until I just happened upon it whilst looking through the "Show any page" option on the left hand side of the screen. I just want to say that I am extremely upset that you guys found it necessary to delete pretty much all of the articles that I made for you. It is like kicking someone that is down. You are making me rethink my decision to come back to this site now. There are a number of pages which are definitely notable, including Suceava River, Moldova River, Prahova River, Siret River, and a bunch of other major tributaries that you guys just decided did not need to be put onto this Wikipedia. Why did you even bother deleting them if they were already made in the first place? They are going to need to be recreated at some point further down the road, so why not just leave them undeleted so that they are there for when we start needing articles for all the rivers of every country around the world. Rivers and other geographical places have inherent notability according to the notability guidelines on the English Wikipedia that says that things in which are places on the world are inherently notable because they are important because you may need to know all about them. They are an important part of an encyclopedia, so without them, you are kind of like cutting out a portion of editors to this site. I thought that the idea of the Simple English Wikipedia was to make an encyclopedia by writing articles in your interests. Geography is my interest, and I love Romania, so I definitely think that these should all be undeleted. This, in my opinion, was done behind my back (you waited until I retired and then put them all up for deletion. If I had still been on here, you would not have gotten the same vote for the request for deletion. I definitely believe that they are an integral part of this Wikipedia; much more so than the asteroids. I could care less about the asteroids, but when you mess with the Romanian Rivers, I get pissed off. I would like to request that the vote be redone and/or all of the articles undeleted. Thanks, Razorflame 03:56, 9 August 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I ask that very serious consideration and discussion be given to this request. Unlike the asteroid RFD, Razorflame was not informed of the Romanian rivers RFD since he had officially retired from the project. It must be very disheartening for any editor to have much of his work deleted from a project and I think we should seriously enter into a discussion about articles that enWP would consider notable even if they were small stubs. fr33kman talk 04:12, 9 August 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Although they might serve a purpose to some users as an NRT, they were first invented by Ruyan as a smoking alternative to allow smokers to "smoke" where there are restrictions in place to prevent them from doing so. The Chinese name Ruyan loosly translates into english as "smoke anywhere". They were never intended to act as an NRT although some traders decided to market clones of Ruyan's initial invention as smoking cessation devices. to quote the World Health Organisation:
I wish to propose the pages User:Tmalmjursson and Talk:Tmalmjursson for undeletion. They were deleted because they were vandalised, and the user who deleted them did not think to revert the vandalism. He just proceeded to delete all the content that was there. I have temporarily restarted the pages, but I would like the old content which was there putting back if possible, prior to the vandalism by the Slobodan Milosevic vandal. - They were deleted by user Blockinablox Thanks - Tmalmjursson 14:26, 16 March 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply] 2b1af7f3a8
